Have you ever used iCloud web page? It can help you to fix this issue of importing contacts to iPhone.

Log in your iCloud account from www.icloud.com with your passcode.

Click "Contacts" on the home screen to check the contacts.

Move to a setting icon on the left bottom side to select "import contacts" so that you can choose the csv file that you'd like to import to iPhone.

After that, you can preview the result on the web page and iPhone contacts app.

You'll have to import those contacts into a application that iTunes can sync with. Then sync contacts through iTunes, just connect your iPhone and click Info across the top of iTunes, see this for more details -> iOS: Syncing with iTunes


Mac: Address Book, iCal, Microsoft Entourage, or Microsoft Outlook 2011

PC: Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Addressbook (XP) and Windows Contacts (Vista and Windows 7)

I do not know if someone would still be finding a solution for this issue.

I recently get an iPhone and managed to transfer all my contacts from my Lenovo(Android OS) to iPhone.

You need to install a free tool on your computer for the import of CSV files to iPhone. You can check and see how I get it sync over with the free tool here, http://www.betterhostreview.com/transfer-contacts-android-iphone-free.html
